LA HABRA, CA- The Royals hosted Colorado Christian at home on Friday, March 18. HIU played a close match, but they came up just short with a 4-5 loss.

HIU won one out of three doubles matches. Anthony Sena (SR/Norwalk, CA) and Adrien Varenne (JR/Reunion Island, FRA) took a win in doubles, outscoring their competitors 8-2. Andres Rivas and Mauricio Mosquera (JR/Ambato, Ecuador) scored 4 points in their doubles match, finishing with a score of 4-8. The third doubles match was a forfeit for the Royals due to their numbers disadvantage.

When it came to singles matches, HIU won three of the six. Mosquera took a win in singles with a score or 6-0, 6-2. Varenne also took a win in singles, giving him a final tally of 6-0, 6-0. Sena had the third win in singles with a 6-0, 6-0 finish as well.

Two of the singles losses were due to that same numbers disadvantage. If the Royals had the correct amount of players, they would have stood an even better chance against Colorado Christian. However, they did the best they could with what they had and almost won the match.

The Royals face off next against Holy Names tomorrow on Saturday, March 19, at home in La Habra at 1:00 pm.
